If you have a teen or tween, then I highly recommend watching a video about our media culture and how Christians can respond.
It’s a documentary called Captivated: Finding Freedom in a Media Captive Culture, and right now it streams free on Amazon Prime! Don’t have Amazon Prime? You can borrow the DVD from our Church Library.
Everywhere we go, we are surrounded by screens. Have we entered a techno utopia or a virtual prison? Get ready to be inspired by this award winning documentary. Find insightful answers to tough questions from media experts and church leaders. Hear inspiring stories from families and individuals who have found freedom. Discover how the Bible addresses the unique media challenges we face today.

What else are we doing on this important topic?
In February the youth will be equipped in learning how to evaluate the media they consume. We’ll
do this through a resource called 3-D guides from the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding. Youth will learn a series of steps – Discover, Discern, Decide – to help them understand the worldview behind media.
For parents, we will hold a training in February during one of the Fuel meetings. The topic? Tech-Sensible Parenting. This will help you prepare your children to engage media in a way that honors our creative God.
Have a Merry Christmas!
